Brains Unchained - The idea from Sun Don Lee(李)'s work Saint-Lotus Lady Jewel series

李善單Sun Don Lee , Saint-Lotus Lady Jewel 4,  2012, Oil on Canvas, 72.5x91cm (30F)

She lives in no time, now and then. She seems no smile on face but understands quite well into the environment.  
The hat protects her hair, inspiring her with flowers and unseen spirits.

The totemic around represents the realm emerging from her wisdom from nowhere.

Starting from August 17, Frontier Art • X-Power Gallery is to hold the “Full Moon,  Spring Blossom - Master and Pupils Joint Exhibition by Lee Sun-Don &  Ma Sing Ling

The works on display are Professor Lee's latest series “Wonderful Clouds”, and Ma Sing Ling's two series, “Fantasy of Art” and “Floral Moon Duet.”
Internationally reputed, the "Contemporary Oriental Picasso" Professor Lee Sun-Don is the first artist in Asia in the past a hundred years of art history to ever participate in the “Venice Biennale” in an "Individual Oil Painting Pavilion.” 

The exhibited series “Wonderful Clouds” are works created with the mind-eye to depict a state of being, rather than the realistic representations. In the creation, allowing the paint to develop and change spontaneously, the artist managed the figurative as well as the abstract presentation simultaneously, using both the explicit and the implicit way of expression. 

The series reveals the beauty of flowing energies, powerful momentum, high originality, and a deep philosophical Zen mood. Professor Lee told Hong Kong media in an interview about his creative concept of this series: "The most important concept in Buddhism is 'One United Form', focusing on uniting the opposing states into oneness", "Put together the colors or conditions that are not supposed to be put together in the history of Western art, to break these rules with Buddhist doctrines. This is a way never used before."
Studying under Professor Lee Sun-Don, "Ma Sing Ling" is the Asian woman artist trio whose joint creations have been appreciated and collected by the President of Kelti Chen Wu-gang, the Chairman of Industrial Bank of Taiwan Kenneth C.M. Lo, the President of Jih Sun Group Chen Kwok-hei and other major collectors. 

The exhibited “Fantasy of Art” series continues the feature underlying all their works “to fully challenge the flowing and flexibility of oil paint.” In that free, unpredictable flowing, they added new concepts and ideas, to face all kinds of things with a broad, artistic mind, to use their imagination to experience the marvel and subtlety of the world even through the works of classical music masters. 

The series “Floral Moon Duet” symbolizing wealth and perfection of life shows, however, a different style from the past. Each piece has a red-lacquered door and a moon, meaning only with magnanimity, wisdom and compassion one can accord with what the image of moon symbolizes – perfection of life. The delicate strokes used in this series, though rarely seen in Ma Sing Ling's works, nonetheless reveal the unique romantic mood of woman artists.

Saenkom Chansrinual created this unique collection of artwork titled "Grand Mountain" to pay tribute to the greatness of nature and the heavenly view from the top of the mountain. In this artwork collection, he used a self-formulated technique in which the solid acrylic were first melted, squeezed, and painted in an overlay manner, one-by-one painstakingly onto the canvas to form magnificent mountain scenery which transports the viewers into a sense of peacefulness. Apart from the rich texture he created, his ultimate skill in applying the metallic paints to create the three-dimensional perspective effects in his artwork is fascinated.


Unlimited Revenue soaring by heaven, earth and humankind [利] - Wonderful Clouds / Soaring Dragon • Supreme Nobility by 李善單Sun Don Lee(X-Power Gallery)

Artist Sun Don Lee's new work: Wonderful Clouds / Soaring Dragon  Supreme Nobility 
Year: 2013  Medium: Acrylic on Canvas  Size: 100x200cm (100F)

Soaring dragon is a sign of getting famous or fortune in Chinese tradition.
And people might use Mandarin word 利, (read as li4) to illustrate the revenue, the interest.
To write the word as following stroke sequence,

You might write  "禾" as the first part (means cereals or grains), 
and "刂" as the second one, also the radical index, which means a knife.

In ancient time, farmers harvest the grains by using knief, and get the their revenue.

In artist Sun Don Lee's new work, Wonderful Clouds / Soaring Dragon  Supreme Nobility, 
we could see the clouds soaring like a flying dragon above the mountains, 
and there is a temple just located at the middle of mountains in the artwork. 

Artist creates this series of artwork with the style of Chinese painting, to demonstrate the inner world of a Chinese artist, based on Taiwan where most of Chinese culture preserved in the modern time.

In this series of works, Lee uses monochrome ink to depict the natural mountains and clouds with abstract idea, while painting different light and dark areas by regulating the moisture of the ink (in fact acrylic). 

The most prominent idea of this series of works is the location of the temple.
Chinese people believe that when heaven, earth and humankind, the three dominance reaches balance and work effectively, the fortune and fame comes.

So the location of a building would suggest not only convenience of daily life, 
but also the revenue created without limitation when combing the spirits from heaven and human beings.

"Where is my temple?" 
Lee asks himself this question at the last stage of painting creation, and draws the temple on the canvas to make a finale perfect, but with unlimited bliss for anyone who enjoy the artwork.

And where is your temple to make your life with real revenue such as healthy, joy or fortune?

Maybe you can find some answers from Sun Don Lee's new "Wonderful Clouds" works at X-Power Gallery!

什麼是慈悲?讓人吃飯就是最大的慈悲: [轉載] 李善單Sun Don Lee 笑釋「禪畫」- 妙得雲變/帝王氣運大開心



  中國的禪不僅是宗教,中國的水墨亦不僅是材質。這些難於被西方社會所了解的內容,隻能以東方神秘主義指標題以蔽之。不過,所謂東方神秘主義的內核其實不屬於東方,而是西方人的東方印象,長久沉溺反而失了性情。修行人、被稱作東方畢加索的台灣畫家李善單,時而窠臼裏,時而乾坤外;近日他於海港城展出的「妙得雲變系列」,很有點乾坤之外的意思。/本報記者  成 野

  在畫與禪中兜兜轉轉,筆者有心無力決意跳脫。李善單有趣,向來是修行賣畫兩不誤,不但自己的畫作大賣,更幫別人賣畫,他是台北新藝博會(Art Revolution Taipei)的創始人,在去年的第二屆台北新藝博會落下帷幕之時,以成交率百分之九十一點一八,總參觀人數二萬八千五百八十七人收官。
